Responsible Gambling Week 2019
This year’s Responsible Gambling Week is running from 7th – 13th November and as ever, it’s an important opportunity for you to check in on your own gambling habits and to familiarise yourself with the services we provide our OJOers that encourage responsible gaming.
Gambling should be pure fun. No doubt you’ve got your fave games you love to play and that’s just great, we want OJO to be your tropical oasis on a rainy day. But what gambling should definitely not be is a way to make a fast buck, that’s what day jobs are for and you should never play with money you can’t afford.
OJO offers our players a great range of services and tools that are specifically designed to help you gamble responsibly. Click here to learn everything you need to know about Responsible Gaming at OJO’s. In the meantime, here’s a mini breakdown of just some of the Player Limitation tools we offer, which can be found in the OJO Safeguard tab in the ‘My Account’ section:
Self-Exclusions and Cooling-Off
Feel like you need to take a break? Self-Exclusion can deactivate your account for a minimum of 180 days, until you tell us otherwise. We also offer a Temporary Suspension which suspends your account for 30, 60 or 90 days and a Cooling-Off option for an even shorter period of time of 24 hours, 48 hours or 7 days. During those periods, you won’t be able to deposit or gamble at all and we won’t send you any kind of marketing material either. We’ve got your back, just give us the word.
Spending more than you can afford? With OJO you can adjust your depositing limits at any time you like so if you’d rather be putting a bit more aside for that holiday abroad or new pair of designer shoes, just go and change your limits via the Safeguard section. Easy peasy.
Need OJO to step in for a bit of a reality check? That’s what friends are for after all. OJO’s Reality Checks allow you to set time limits on your game-play and when you’ve reached a certain limit whilst playing, a message will pop up to tell you that your time is up. You can of course change the time-frame in between Reality Checks but this way, time doesn’t run away from you.
It’s always good to know where you stand. That’s why OJO offers our players a self-assessment test where you can take a short test to understand if gambling is becoming an issue for you. Concerned? Take the Self-Assessment test by clicking here.
If you’re feeling like you need to cut ties altogether then you can temporarily or indefinitely ban yourself from being able to gamble or receive any marketing material from any casino that is licensed in Great Britain. Visit www.gamstop.co.uk for more info.
You can contact the OJO crew with any questions you have concerning Responsible Gambling or you can go ahead and apply any limitations discussed to your account by visiting the website yourself. OJO always encourages you to play responsibly.
